2013-14 Avatars

Will it be the last season at NVMC is the question. I'm thinking of a few ides. Maybe a Billy Joel theme " say goodbye to Hollywood errrr Long Island". Maybe we can use pictures of long Island monuments or anyone famous people born in long Island. We could also use Rodney with the "no respect? approach as well. A animated gif with John Tavares saying "people say I'm marginally talented" and then Rodney pics with "we get no respect"

Thoughts or ideas are welcomed.

Long Island monuments? What like NCMC and the Jones Beach Tower? Skip it.

The Rodney idea might be fun as I'm a big fan, but I think they are actually getting respect now. Plus, you'd have to think of a tag line for every player featured in an avatar. Might be a lot of work....

Maybe something about "meaning business" or "coming of age"? Not those words exactly, but something a lot more succinct and catchy?

I like the Billy Joel idea. And personally I'd go with lyrics from "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant" cause I think it sort of resonates with Islanders fans.

I've been thinking about this lately, too. The Billy Joel thing could work... let me see if I can come up with some more ideas, too...

Totally UNrelated to NYI, but related to Lawnguyland (and what the outside world knows of us from the boob tube. How about a bunch of different / theatrical ways for LI Medium to meet a grisly end?

Launched into space strapped to rocket (jabbering non-stop all the way out of atmosphere when, mercifully, she runs out of oxygen)

Getting the Quint treatment in Jaws

Superimposed on body of Wile E. Coyote as he runs off cliff....

I'm melting, meeeelllltttiiing....

"Does someone in the room have the sense that a loved one may be in danger?" (Confusion on her face as she sees it's her husband raising hand -- half a second before piano falls from the sky on her)


Hmm, maybe it could come back to NYI after all

One thing about Long Island
[Medium meets maker]
We don't do MEDIUM

I see all the PS wizards are in on this party... DarkHorse, MattMartin, And You Feel Shame. I'm sure we'll come up with something great for the upcoming season.

I'm not changing my avatar though, my ladies are my signature.

If you guys can come up with something really good, MAYBE I'll use it. It's gotta be something awesome though for that to happen. The pressure is on guys.

I like the Isles sites theme for 'A Shift in Power' as we look to become a contender and make the playoffs again.

Maybe the artist chosen for this endeavor can incorporate one of your lovely Korean sweethearts into it?

I was on their site quite a bit today, but honestly didn't even notice it.

I'll try to work it in.

If that's a Lady Godiva thing that would be pretty funny. Disturbing, but funny.

Nice job! With all due respect to you and your work when I first saw it I saw 9 11. I would take out the barrier between 91 and Tavares. Again it is really nice. Put it on a t shirt and sell it in the parking lot at games .

Haha, are you hinting that I change it? New season so I'll find a new one that's a little more obscure.

yeah i just noticed that yesterday when i went on the website. i kinda liked "orange and blue + you". the website design was really cool too with only highlighting the blue, white and orange, and having "paint spashes"
